Anterior cruciatum ligament

M Tinius, S Klima, W Tinius, C Josten
Opinions differ on unicompartmental knee replacement for treatment of unicompartmental ostearthritis of the knee. There is general agreement that well-functioning cruciate ligaments are necessary if use of this prosthesis is to be successful. Especially for younger people who are still working and who have advanced medial arthritis and lacking or inadequate anterior cruciate ligament, this therapy has its limitations. To exploit the advantages of unicondylar replacement in such patients, we combined this joint replacement operation with reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament using the semitendinosus/gracilis tendon and applying a transfix technique in 7 cases...

The anterior cruciate ligament or ACL (ligamenturn cruciatum anterius) is often injured, either alone or within complex ligament injuries of the knee. Therefore, the knowledge of detailed anatomic (macro- and micro-morphological) characteristics of this ligament is of key importance in therapy. The anatomy, structure, insertions, vascularization and inervation of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee are described from the aspect of modern treatment and rehabilitation methods.

This study examines the structure of sensory nerve endings in the sheep anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Three types of nerve endings are found: free nerve endings (FNE), Ruffini corpuscles, and lamellated corpuscles. The FNE (more than 100) are found subsynovially. The afferent nerve fibres are either thin myelinated axons (Adelta) or C fibres with diameters of 1-2 microm. FNE have been reported to function as thermoreceptors and polymodal nociceptors. In addition, FNE are also seen between fascicles of collagen fibres, often close to blood vessels...

The sensory innervation of the anterior cruciate ligament (ligamentum cruciatum anterius) of the human knee joint was studied by light- and electron microscopy. The connective tissue between the synovial membrane and the cruciate ligament contains small Ruffini corpuscles and lamellar corpuscles with several inner cores. The connective tissue septa between the individual fascicles of the cruciate ligament contain Ruffini corpuscles and free nerve endings. The free nerve endings are innervated by C-fibres and myelinated A-delta fibres...
